MARK TERRY | July 18, 2019 | 172 views

Bayer, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Ono Pharmaceutical have teamed up to study the most common type of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). The three companies will collaborate to test Bayer’s kinase inhibitor Stivarga (regorafenib) and Bristol-Myers Squibb’s and Ono’s anti-PD-1 checkpoint inhibitor Opdivo (nivolumab) in microsatellite stable metastatic colorectal cancer (MSS mCRC). The effectiveness of immuno-oncology treatments for some subpopulations of CRC have been observed, but about 95% of mCRC have MSS tumors, where immuno-oncology monotherapies haven’t been as effective.

How Can Medical Cannabis Help to Manage Pain Conditions? – The Cannabis Exchange

Article | February 11, 2020

Pain management is one of the most common reasons for the use of medical cannabis products. However, despite many jurisdictions – including Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands – now allowing the prescription of medical cannabis for this purpose, there remains little ‘high-quality’ evidence to support, or oppose its efficacy. Madden et al. (2018) set out to review the evidence available in order to determine the efficacy of medical cannabis when employed in the management of various forms of musculoskeletal pain. The researchers analysed various studies that assessed the use of cannabinoids in the treatment of arthritis pain; back pain; postoperative pain; and trauma-related pain. It is estimated that up to 30% of the population may suffer from a non-cancer-related pain condition. As such a high percentage of people suffer from these conditions, the development of simple and safe therapies is an essential area of research. This is particularly important as the therapeutic options for people with chronic pain are increasingly limited.

pharmaphorum | October 10, 2019

Bayer has continued its policy of setting up R&D hubs to get closer to innovative companies with a UK site that will focus on applying artificial intelligence to drug discovery and disease diagnosis.

The project will analyse research from three million anonymised, ethically sourced NHS patient records and data provided through Sensyne’s partnerships with NHS trusts, with the NHS remaining the controller of all patient data.

EMA approves Bayer’s NTRK-targetting Vitrakvi for children and adults

Pharmaceutical Technology | September 24, 2019

Bayer has announced that the European Medicine Agency (EMA) has licensed its Vitrakvi (larotrectinib) in adults and children with solid tumours displaying Neurotrophic Tyrosine Receptor Kinase (NTRK) gene fusion. The indicated patients must also have either locally advanced or metastatic disease, or be in a situation where there are no adequate treatment options or surgical resection is likely to cause severe morbidity. This makes Vitrakvi the first tumour agnostic drug to be approved in the European Union (EU), which means it can be used against multiple tumour types with the same, rare genetic alteration. NTRK gene fusion occurs when the NTRK gene fuses with an unrelated gene, leading to an altered TRK protein, which has oncogenic drivers encouraging the spread and growth of cancer cells.
